Would you be kind enough to give me your considered opinion concerning the interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
That old black bicycle, it really seemed a part of her! To tease her, I said I believed that she was, and would be all her life, geared to those wheels. (A. J. Cronin, “Nurse Davies”)
geared to those wheels = attached to those wheels by a mechanism
Attached, but not necessarily by a mechanism.
